I respect your views , that being said in business timing is key and if you have developed the skills and contacts then there is no point in delaying. I do agree with you when you say that no one is an overnight success . I’m not advocating for people to quit their job to run and chase their dreams as their dream may not pay well . Although I strongly believe that we each have our own definition of success and if making 10k or 20k less while doing the thing you most love makes you happy then go out and do it. When chasing our dreams we all have to take a leap , there is a process but it starts with a step. If all choices were small steps there wouldn’t be as much risk/reward.
